You guys must have some pretty shallow leagues then if someone like Votto would be on the waiver wire. He's not a guy I would drop that's for sure. Go ahead and pick him up, I would probably drop Chris Young and not Maybin though. I've not been a big fan of Chris Young the OF, he strikes out way too much for my liking.
I'd grab him for sure, I think he's in for a great year. I'd drop either Maybin (since he's unproven, you may be able to pick him up later). If you like his upside, either Johnson or Young could be dropped, too (I'm not high on either, plus with Kinsler you don't really need an extra 2B).
While I agree Young may one day be 30-30, he strikes out way too much. He'll kill a fantasy team with his .230 avg. Agreed that he has more value than Maybin or Johnson at this point, but I'd look to trade him rather than play him.
When and if Kinsler goes down, there will no doubt be a number of 2Bs out there with stats similar to K. Johnson.

Thanks for the help - looks like some differing views on who to drop, but everyone is on board with adding Votto. I'm in a h2h points league that doesn't penalize for avg or k's...does that make any difference as to dropping player x to add Votto?
